Dental Implants VS Dentures
Dental Implants vs. Dentures
Traditionally, dentures have been the go-to tooth-replacement solution. Before dental implants, when people had missing teeth, there was no way to actually replace the missing tooth roots. While dentures have come a long way in recent years, they still can be a source of pain, discomfort, embarrassment, and inconvenience to most patients. Dental implants, on the other hand, are a complete breakthrough in dentistry and have quickly replaced dentures as the best tooth-replacement option. Though the dental implants process may take a few months, Dr. Vincent Tavormina’s Millburn patients have expressed that it’s well worth the wait. Read on to learn more about dental implants vs. dentures, as well as the benefits of dental implants, and then contact us for your personal consultation with Dr. Vincent Tavormina.
Why are Dental Implants Preferred over Dentures?
Dental implants remain the popular choice among our Millburn-area patients. This is because dental implants actually provide a replacement for missing teeth. Teeth are not meant to move or slip when you are speaking and eating, as they do with dentures. Implants replace your missing tooth roots and provide an anchor for dentures, or new roots onto which are placed non-removable teeth. During the osseointegration process, dental implants actually fuse to the jawbone and become part of the dental bone, providing a strong foundation for replacement teeth. Furthermore, they can look, fit, and feel just like natural teeth! You have the option of getting permanent or removable replacement teeth to attach onto your dental implants—this is based on personal preference.
Besides convenience, Dr. Tavormina’s patients have also chosen dental implants for their comfort. With dentures, the lack of tooth root support can lead to jawbone shrinkage. Loss of dental bone usually leads to more and more pain for the denture wearer. Loss of jawbone structure can also lend a sunken appearance to the cheeks and face, completely aging the people it affects and causing premature wrinkles.
